"He said: "If you accept that number, you sell your soul to the devil.""
And I say it’s a number, between 665 and 667. THAT’S IT!
Anything else attributed to it is entirely social, made up fantasy by the SMALL human mind.
Thats more like it.
Re: cooling vent?
"I agree - my old Samsung NC150 Netb**k managed 10 hours on a fairly regular basis."
It takes 5 hours for it to do anything!
Re: cooling vent?
"A portable tablet-based device that requires a cooling vent and fans is obviously doing something wrong, and the battery life is hardly up there with "conventional" tablets (Nexus, ipad etc). It really needs a 7-9hour battery life, IMO, otherwise it's just another win8 laptop, albeit lighter/smaller."
Sounds like you didn't read or fully understand what was written.
fixed that for you
"The Surface is NOT a toy ......yadda yadda yadda"
"the iPad is sexy and fashionable in Executive circles"
Exactley! The iPad was sexy and fashinable, least decade.
When have the Executive circles ever been sexy or fashionable, or even in this decade?
NEVER! They follow a crowd.
Re: Brings the LULZ
"my policy of "only buy physical" will not be replaced any time soon."
Eh? I've not bought various types of "physical" entertainment for a long time now.
I'm not going backwards. Hideous collections of CDs/DVDs/VHS/Cassettes/Books on shelves all over the house? No thanks.
(Tho I ain’t getting rid of my vinyl for anyone)
Re: The study sounds plausible
"watching pr0n clearly showed to me that sexual orientation and preferences are quite solidly set and cannot be changed"
Married men who use rent boys.
Clergy fancying kids.
Gay men with children.
Not so sure about that.
Maybe the fear you can become homosexual through being influenced by something or someone comes from the individuals true (and sometimes unknown) feelings and not what society has taught them (from religious beliefs?) from the age you learned to speak.

Education was also positively associated with support for same-sex marriage
"I honestly look forward to the snooping bill becoming law.
Anything that keeps me and my children safe from terrorists and pedophiles is a good thing."
What! I bet you don't filter the internet connections to your kids devices.
Most of the time you don't even know where they are!
"People" like you make England sick.
"Nevertheless, we believe that the decline of available communications data will begin shortly to have a serious impact on the intelligence and security Agencies."
Yet the nosey bastard’s charter is used by local councils more than MI5! Total abuse of power.
Of course it's not the government that annoys me most, it's the British citizens whom have NO CLUE (about anything) about what is going on and really don't give a shit.
Honestly, I'm surrounded by IDIOTS! Idiots whose lack of caring (for their kids, never mind each other) means MY rights are eroded.
Re: Canned my account ...
"The only reason, was friends, acquaintances and family. I don't follow *anyone* else. I don't have any urge to gain more followers and I post seldom."
So you don't follow any one else other than friends, acquaintances and family. WTF? Yeah said it earlier, sharp, this guys very sharp.
Re: Lies, damned lies and statistics
"Without an idea of how many hours each group is using FB, these numbers are pointless and the article simply becomes spin."
Pointless spin. The Reg hacks speciality.
"Ah, a troll being up-voted by other trolls - how funny you all are!
How witty and original!"
W O W, your wit knows no bounds. Sharp as a tack to make such an observation.
"the thing will drive you nuts with a constant stream of drivel if you don't."
It's not Farcebook with the constant stream of drivel, it's your so-called "friends".
You need more interesting and active friends.
"to those 20 per cent who say they've quit Facebook, allow this Reg reporter to extend his gnarled index finger and say: "You'll be back! Mark my words ... you'll be back!" "
to those 20 per cent who say they've quit Facebook, allow this Reg reporter to extend his gnarled index finger and say: "You twat! Now I look even more stupid than I did."
Re: "ChildLine is sending workers to every primary school in Britain...
"I think we are more likely to have another generation that just expects handouts from that government."
Well, people will treat their kids like little prince/princesses and not teach them responsibiliy/accountability/vaue.
All the protections kids need to keep them away from adult content already exist.
It’s the PARENTS that need educating, not just the child.
As for the NSPCC saying "It also called for internet service providers to "stick to their commitment" to give parents clear and easy blocks and filters for the net at home"
Maybe if parents "stuck to their commitment" to raise their child, and not use every excuse in the book to pass that responsibility to others, the issue would not be so prevalent.
"Ok so it took me ages to realise that the odd tweet-counter-looking thing was a link to the comments. Enough with the secret sauce, guys!"
Took me the time it takes to hover the mouse pointer over the graphic.
Re: I just don't get it...
"Of course it's a massively silly gimmick and I'd be tempted to take a phone call or use my 3G in that area just to piss them off...." and fuck the people sitting next to me.
"in accordance with our lord Jesus Christ."
Are you taking drugs?
Immediately your views are invalid.
"The EU can't defend itself from itself... Every EU army/air force/navy you have cannot operate without American help, and you know it."
You sound like you believe the (usually bollox) fiction pumped out by hollywood.
Re: I suppose we should be happy big corp wants our data
"Because if nothing else, it means we have some wealth.
There are people who they're not interested in at all, and I'm glad I'm not one of them."
What worth do you have? Not intellectual by the sounds of it.
Sorry, but 10 years for uploading?
That's way to harsh. Talk about out of proportion.
"That'll learn 'em!"
Sounds like school didn't "learn" you anything.
Are we STILL banging on about fking shitty iPhone?
WTF? its 2013! iFad died years ago.
What, you wanna look like a luddite?
Didn't realise that the reg commentards were such experts. Who'd have though a BOFH could work out the planets energy needs.
The majority don't care about anything but their pathetic little selves. Lets just burn as much coal and gas as possible and fuck up the planets climate. I don't care less about the kids future, I won't be here.
Humans are just so SMALL!
Re: Sliding down the slope to obsolescence
"Come on Apple, give us something that gets us excited again"
You did it once in the 80's and again in 2007. Don't let it take decades to wow your fans.
"CEOP noted that a sharp increase in smartphone usage among 12- to 15-year-olds - up 21 per cent in just a year - meant that young people were able to communicate and share images more easily than ever with strangers online."
I tell the kids, adults can not be trusted and not to follow any instructions from adults except parents/teachers/police. If they are unsure to call me. I limit what they can do and use software to control thier access.
Dirty bast*rds should be chemically castrated.
"I am forced to endure stupid remarks from stupid people, often in stupidly senior management positions for which stupidity is evidently mandatory in order to achieve their stupid promotion. Stupid."
Whenever I say that I'm told that I'm negative (or a twat by my friends).
Re: But.. all of Apple's shops are different?
Thats Apple for you!
Owning an iDevice is embrassing enough for thier clan, but trust Apple to go that little bit further than most sane people.
Honestly! Lame/gay/tragic/<insert slight here>
Another HUGE waste of of time and money.
Good 'ole England!
"The Minister considers this type of conduct offensive and completely unacceptable"
The minister needs sacked and replaced by someone who knows what they are doing.
Who actually gives a shit? It's bollox anyways.
Re: I've filled in the missing option
Not sure? Penis or wanker? Hmmm!
Re: But the numbers also reflect the demographic which owns an iPhone
"If this was the 80s. they would be called Yuppies....."
No, no they wouldn't.
iPhone owners, a demographic which makes more calls and uses more data without worrying about the cost or are just too stupid to notice.
Definately the latter.
Re: Its America
Figures! (WOW the irony)
Re: RE: I'm Cancelling my subscription!
Re: The Apple what?
"Apple Maps - the only real Apple product that could be thought of as 'rusty'." by the appleites, whilst everyone else knows that its not just maps that has Apple rot.
Your getting excited about a company!
Have you listened to your self? Tragic!
"just thinking out loud."
"the Tory-led coalition government "only talks to those who have a self interest in reducing their tax contribution" when writing new rules."
Surprise Surprise, money grabbing Tory scum wriggle out of paying their fair share!
What a shocker!
Any NEW NEWS?
someLuser should find more interesting things to do with his time, instead of wasting mine, the twat.
Re: Muslims in Space
"This raises the question of stasis chambers for deep space travel: should Jewish and Muslim astronauts be defrosted (once a week, resp. 5x a day) to do their praying?"
No. Lets leave the crazies here. We don't want to take that nonsense with us.
Iran + ICBM = We're all doomed to wear head dress and chant religious bollox or be nuked.
"At which supermarket chain can you get 24 cans of superstrength fighting lager for a fiver?"
Thats more like it. The shame.
